Earls closes all restaurants in North America amid coronavirus pandemic

Mar 17 2020, 10:12 am

Attractions and events across Canada are closing and postponing activities amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

This includes restaurants and bars that have elected to shut down in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Many large chains have decided to temporarily close, and the latest is Earls.

Earls has now closed the doors to all of its 66 locations across North America, but the kitchens are still operating and takeaway and delivery are available.

The company did not provide a re-opening date in its statement, saying they will remain closed “until it is deemed safe to reopen with public health authorities.”

Yesterday the Cactus Club Cafe announced they would be closing their doors by the end of the day on March 17 until at least March 31 (it will offer takeaway and delivery during that timeframe), and The Keg Steakhouse + Bar announced it will be closing by the end of today on Tuesday.

With coronavirus on the rise, Health Canada is reminding individuals who attend events and large gatherings to monitor their health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. And if you’re not feeling well, they recommend staying home at this time. Also, due to unexpected cancellations, please check the event you plan to attend is still taking place.
